We’re sharing our not-so-glorious moments, including what we learned about flipping the script and turning it all around, even when things seemed hopeless. Listen now!

Can’t-Miss Moments From This Episode:

  • Life throws curveballs and $h%t happens, my friends. The real magic is in knowing when to sidestep and when to shimmy through the chaos. Dawn and I share our strategies for letting go and moving forward with confidence.
  • Plot twist: you don’t need to be a jack-of-all-trades, and in fact, trying to be may actually be hurting you. So what do you do when you can’t (and shouldn’t) do it all? Dawn and I have some thoughts on playing to your strengths and doing things you actually ENJOY.
  • Spoiler Alert: dimming your own sparkle is a one-way ticket to Stucksville. There’s a reason I eventually set the “tone it down” advice on fire and embraced my true nature, fiery red hair, tattoos and all… because that’s what people LIKE about me! Dawn and I reveal why authenticity (NOT manufactured vulnerability) is the name of the game…
  • Calling all players of the “Blame Game”… are you ready to drop the victim mindset? No judgment here, friend… we’ve all been to that club (team jackets pending). If you’re feeling stuck, Dawn will help untangle any jumbled thoughts and turn them into strengths…
  • Let’s play “Worst Case Scenario” for fun and profit: how far can you take your worries and fears? Can you take it all the way to “end of all life as we know it”? Dawn and I dig into how blowing it way out of proportion can help you get unstuck when fear rears its ugly head.

This one is jam-packed full of advice. Don’t miss out – listen now!

Dawn’s Bio:

Dawn Wiggins became a marriage and family therapist because of her own experience as a child of divorce. About 10 years into her career, she thought: “This doesn’t work. This sucks.” At the same time, she became trained in EMDR. And that was a game changer. She saw her clients healing so much faster and more deliciously.

She expanded her practice to integrate multiple modalities from EMDR to EFT tapping, journaling, and energetic remedies for the mind and body—because you can’t heal one without healing the other. As a top-ranked therapist, she garnered a waiting list and top secret “who’s who” clientele. But it’s her mission to deliver life-changing therapy in an accessible, scalable, affordable way and make waves in the world of mental health with the same enlightenment that happens in her office. Part science, part essential oils, pure magic.

She helps people crack open, with a candid approach that sometimes inspires frustration. Because being cracked open can feel terrifying. Parts of you that you didn’t know existed reveal themselves. Past traumas you’d buried or never even knew you had come to the surface. And the thing is: once you crack open, it’s hard to go back. The only way out is through.

But not to worry—she takes her candid approach with such love and light that those feelings of frustration never stay for long. It’s her greatest honor to sit with you, hold space for you, and guide you on this journey so that you can reconnect to yourself and then to others. A life of joy and fulfillment awaits, and she lives this from personal experience.

Divorce isn’t the end of your journey. It’s the beginning.
